You can purchase an adapter "Parallel to USB" for printers to be used with printers.

HP DESK TOP 840C PRINTER CONNECTION


Hello,

They do make adater cables for such problems. Here is just one such example: Parallel to USB Cable

Make sure you get the correct 25 pin cable. They have this type also:

Parallel to USB Cable 2

You can search the web for more companies. Google parallel to usb printer cable.

After saying all that and checking your printer info, I see that the 840c has both a parallel and a USB cable port. See page 21 of the manual: HP 840c Manual

If you go that route, you will need a standard USB cable. The shorter the better, but no longer than a 6' cable. Make sure you follow the iinstallation instructions for the USB setup in the manual.

Thanks for using Fixya.

What printer do I use to connect an Officejet d135


A printer does not connect to a hard drive.

Is the connector on the PC a Male (Parallel) or Female "D" (Serial) shaped connector?

Does the PC have a flat USB connector you can use?

If it does, then you should be able to purchase a cable that has an "End Point Connector" The "U" shaped block and the other end is the flat conector that is oon just about everthing.

Can I connect my HP laserjet 5p with a 25 pin connector to my laptop which only has USB connection


Hello,

On the back of the printer where the cable connects is actually a 36 pin connector, the end going to the computer is the 25pin end. What you will need to do is get a USB to parallel cable, they run $15-25, this will have the USB plug on one end and the 36pin centronix printer connection on the other end. This cable will allow your printer to be connected to the laptop. Office Depot and Staples should have the cable you need, if not you can do a google search for it and order one online.

I hope this helps, if so please rate our solution.

I want to connect my epson stylus photo 820 to my computer how can i do this?


You just connect the USB cable to the back of the printer and to an available USB port on the computer. If you don't have any USB ports available, you will need to get a USB hub. That effectively let's you share one of the ports that you have on your computer. If you need the printer driver, you can get it here: http://www.epson.com/cgi-bin/Store/support/supDetail.jsp?BV_UseBVCookie=yes&oid=14409&infoType=Downloads

Converting HP 4L laser printer to "plug and play"


You need a "usb" (the connector on your laptop), to "parallel" (the connector on the printer) adapter. May be hard to find these days as parallel printer ports are fairy obsolete, but they may have one.

Hook Up possible for EPSON Stylus 880 to new computer w/USB ?


There is no conversion cable that you can use with parallel connector since USB transfers data in Serial mode and the parallel cable handles data in Parallel mode.

Sorry.

Want to connect to my computer


What connector/interface does your PC has
9-pin or 25-pin connector

If it has 9-pin connector: use the following:
DB-9 RS-232 Serial Connection
or
DB-25 RS-232 Serial Connection

If it has 25-pin connector: use the following:
DB-25 Serial Connection
or
DB-25 RS-232 Serial Connection

If you are configuring the computer to use an RS-422A serial port, you need a special cable. Contact the computer or printer network manufacturer to see if an RS-422A cable is available. If no cable is available, contact your computer manufacturer for your computer pin assignments and have a cable constructed.

The default configuration for the serial port on the printer is for RS-232C serial communication. To set the printer to use RS-422A serial communication, change the control panel Serial Menu’s SERIAL setting to SERIAL=RS-422.
